Sky News Australia Report
An excellent article on the Freedom Convoy can be found at ConservativeWoman.co.uk. The article sums up this must-see Sky News Australia report:
This Sky News Australia report on the Canadian Truckers protest and the GoFundMe outrage, introduced and concluded by Texan Senator Ted Cruz, reviews the whole story and its background. It is well, well worth watching, showing how the convoy has turned into a much larger demonstration against government overreach, which in turn has brought senior US politicians onside and against Big Tech’s attempts to crush freedom.
Left-Wing Activist Charged in an Attack on a Convoy
Man charged in Winnipeg car attack on convoy protest is radical far-left activist. David Zegarac has a history as an anarchist activist. Police, however, are still treating the incident as a hit-and-run, rather than a hate crime.
After Trudeau vilified the peaceful freedom protesters, a supporter was mowed down by a man driving an SUV. A white jeep can be seen hitting one person, before accelerating and hitting three more.

Lawyers Help Those Targetted By the State
The Democracy Fund (TDF), a registered Canadian charity, has deployed a street team of lawyers to help any truckers harangued by officials for peaceful protest. TDF’s intake form can be found at www.TruckerLaw.ca.
Protesters Targeted by The State
At around 4:15, RAIR arrived again at the protest. The mood was festive and peaceful. Our correspondent lest at around 6:45 PM upon hearing that the Ottawa mayor Jim Watson declared a “state of emergency.” The left-wing official also instructed police to arrest Truckers, protestors, and anyone providing material support for the protest.
Many of the protesters were given a five minute warning to leave or they would be arrested:
Ninety minutes before the arrests began:

Ottawa Police announced they would be partnering with federal agencies and digitally surveilling Freedom Convoy protesters, supporters, and donors. The Tudeau government has already been tracking 33 million cell phones of Canadians during Covid.

Ottawa played a lot of dirty tricks with public money to diminish the Trucker’s protest. The Alexandra Bridge to Quebec and the nearby King Edward Bridge were closed down. (see photo below)
In addition to closing bridges, the city also bought out almost every hotel room downtown so no one could book one.

RAIR Foundation USA will be on the ground in Ottawa for the second weekend in a row to bring you the latest news from the Canadian Truckers’ for Freedom Convoy and protest. Once again, tens of thousands of trucks and hundreds of thousands of supporters will converge on Canada’s capital city. Truckers and protesters from all across the country are taking a stand against their government’s authoritarian Covid mandates and restrictions.

Persecution of the Freedom Convoy
Despite Prime Minister Trudeau’s best efforts to slander and hinder the freedom protesters, last weekend’s Truckers convoy was the largest in history, garnered international support, and inspired worldwide protests.
However, the trucks you saw downtown were only a tiny portion of the trucks that came to Ottawa to protest. Trudeau’s government’s dirty tricks to stop protesters included; closing two main bridges leading to the city before the protest began, using large equipment to block roadways into the downtown area, police redirecting truckers away from downtown to parking lots across Ottawa, etc.
A convoy of truckers who could not make it to Ottawa with the Convoy for Freedom converged on the main border crossing between Alberta and Montana. The truckers have been there since last weekend.
GoFundMe Deletes Account, Steals Millions
Left-wing crowdfunding platform, GoFundMe, has deleted the Freedom Convoy fundraiser for supposedly violating its terms, stating that the “peaceful demonstration has become an occupation” now. GoFundMe froze the money after they raised over 10,000,000 Canadian dollars. The company took action following the fascist demands from city officials and Trudeau to seize their funds and redirect them to the city to pay for the costs of policing and PR.
The company told donors that they may submit a request for a full refund until February 19th, 2022, using this refund form. However, those who do not submit a request will have their donations sent to radical left-wing organizations, such as Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood, and Greenpeace.
At the request of Trudeau, @GoFundMe has just stolen $9,000,000 from the truckers. Rather than automatically refunding it to the donors, they say they’re going to give it to groups of their own choosing. What a windfall for Black Lives Matter, Greenpeace and Planned Parenthood! pic.twitter.com/prEwLnypfe— Ezra Levant 🍁 (@ezralevant) February 4, 2022
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed GoFundMe and accused them of fraud:
It is a fraud for @gofundme to commandeer $9M in donations sent to support truckers and give it to causes of their own choosing.— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) February 5, 2022
I will work with @AGAshleyMoody to investigate these deceptive practices — these donors should be given a refund.
Why Are They Protesting
The “Freedom Convoy” was reportedly organized to protest against the vaccine Covid mandates put in place on January 15, 2022. The governments of Canada and the United States mandated the mRNA experimental gene therapy injections to cross the border.
According to the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), as many as 32,000, or 20 percent, of the 160,000 Canadian and American cross-border truck drivers may be taken off the roads due to the mandate. They are also protesting mask mandates for truckers, which orders the drivers to wear masks in trucks. But, for the people, the convoy is a beacon of hope.
Trudeau Will Heighten Crackdown on Freedom Convoy
Last week, in a glaringly obvious PR stunt, authorities moved Trudeau and his family to a “secret location” out of fears for their safety. However, there was no reported threat to the Canadian leader other than the double vaccinated and boosted leader being sick with Covid.
This week, Ottawa police promise a heavy crackdown on Freedom Convoy, despite data showing crime is down in Ottawa. According to the Department’s concerning social media posts, they will be taking an anti-terrorism approach to this weekend’s protests. The police repeatedly slander the Truckers Freedom Convoy as a dangerous, well-funded occupation. However, Ottawa Police Chief Peter Sloly testified Wednesday at the Municipal Police Services Board that “there have been no riots, injuries or deaths.” To date, all charges against truckers involved routine traffic violations or breaches of a local noise bylaw for horn honking.
Authorities are even promising to target those who have provided financial aid to the convoy. Police have alluded to using national intelligence agencies to gather data on Canadians who have given money and supplies to the truckers.

An email leaked to Rebel News Friday morning, sent by Lt. Jennifer MacCosham, the public affairs officer of 8 Wing, the Royal Canadian Air Force base in Trenton, Ontario, to members of the air force, threatens disciplinary action and possible firing of anyone publicly supportive of the convoy protests.
These are the “extremists” that Justin Trudeau is trying to slander.

Interviews with Truckers and Protesters
RAIR went to many base camps where the truckers live when not at the protest. See some of the interesting interviews and photos below.
Is Trudeau Trying To Harm the Truckers by Spreading Misinformation
One of the Truckers camp’s organizers, Emily from Operation Bear Hug, addresses rumors that the government brings in the military. Is this a tactic for Trudeau’s government to use violence against peaceful protesters?
One of the men explained that most truckers are no longer giving interviews due to the media’s deceptive editing.
Canadian Frontline Nurses Feed the Trucker
Trudeau and other government officials falsely claimed that the Truckers stole from the homeless. On the contrary, at each of the base camps RAIR has visited, the Truckers made it very clear that their food was for everyone. See the following signs:
Truckers Donate Food to Homeless Shelter
There was such an abundance of food that the Truckers donated the massive overflow to homeless shelters. In addition, one of the camp’s organizers discussed the protester’s commitment to stay in Ottawa until their freedoms are restored:
